Echo Community Health opens a new dental clinic in Evansville. Echo says dental hygiene is a big issue facing the city.

The new clinic is open for adults without insurance. They hope to expand to adults with Medicaid soon, and next year they want to help children.

Echo says their clinic will be affordable and accessible.

“We’re beyond run of the mill. We’re exemplary. We provide cleanings and extractions, partials, and dentures and fillings. So, all of that is done on a sliding fee scale.”

Echo says this clinic has been 12 years in the making, from concept to completion.

The dental clinic is located on Mulberry Street near the Health Department.
